Circle is only building master branch

Circle is not kicking off builds when I push new branches or when I push commits to those new branches. It’s only building master branch. What am I doing wrong?

By default CircleCI should build every branch:

Can you share more details about your configuration?

Can you share your circle.yml, that would be the quickest way to get to the bottom of what is happening here.

Hey guys, thanks for the help, but I think I figured out my issue. Turns out, if you follow a build in Circle, AND you go into Github and you enable the “CircleCI” configuration, it doesn’t seem to update circle when there’s a new commit.

I may have enabled the service in github before I followed the repo in Circle too.


Glad you figured this out!


I see that a few people are having this issue. I’ve never managed to get a build to automatically happen since enabling this. I’ve had to trigger them manually. I’ve tried unfollowing on circleci and even updating the webhook on github, and nothing is triggering a build.


Same issue. CircleCI did not notice a new branch being created and pushed to GitHub.
Also am struggling with finding an option to add a tracking of the new branch in CircleCI.
